Optimism for US recovery

first_img whatsapp STEADY growth is being observed in the US, the central bank reported last night.In its latest beige book, the Federal Reserve said the economy “continued to improve, on balance” from early/mid-October to mid-November.Manufacturing activity continued to grow in “almost all” districts, reflecting optimistic results from yesterday’s ISM manufacturing index.The beige book found positive signs for employment. “Hiring activity showed some improvement across most Districts,” it said.And expectations for the holiday season are high, “with several districts expecting higher sales when compared to year-ago levels.” Yet there was also bad news for consumer spending. “Households remain price sensitive and focused on buying necessities,” the Fed revealed. And gloom still lurks over the US housing market, which “remains depressed,” with signs in some areas of “further weakening during the past six weeks.”Overall, however, the report was cautiously optimistic. “Anecdotal reports of the districts suggest that activity, on balance, has accelerated modestly,” said Michael Gapen of Barclays Capital Research.

Forget the Bitcoin price rise! Here’s how I’d invest in the stock market rally to make a million

Because we’re offering a full 33% off your first year of membership to our flagship share-tipping service, backed by our ‘no quibbles’ 30-day subscription fee refund guarantee. The Bitcoin price rise over recent months has been significantly stronger than the stock market rally of 2020. For example, while Bitcoin’s price has risen by around 170% since reaching a trough in March, the FTSE 100 is up by around 30%.However, over the long run, a portfolio of shares could offer a more attractive means of making a million than Bitcoin. Their lower risks, low valuations and track record of growth suggest they offer a more favourable risk/reward ratio.5G is here – and shares of this ‘sleeping giant’ could be a great way for you to potentially profit!According to one leading industry firm, the 5G boom could create a global industry worth US$12.3 TRILLION out of thin air…And if you click here we’ll show you something that could be key to unlocking 5G’s full potential…The prospect of a sustained stock market rallyThe 2020 stock market rally is not guaranteed to continue over the coming years. Risks such as Brexit and an uncertain economic environment could derail the progress made since March. However, the track record of indexes such as the FTSE 100 and FTSE 250 suggests a return to the near-8,000 point level achieved by the UK’s main index is very likely over the long term. After all, the stock market has always recovered to post new highs after its various declines in the past.By contrast, the Bitcoin price faces a more uncertain future versus the potential for a stock market rally. It has a limited track record of performance. Moreover, its price is entirely based on investor sentiment. Unlike shares, there are no fundamentals that can be used to deduce whether it offers good value for money. Therefore, buying it could mean investors are grossly overpaying for an asset that appears to have limited value as a replacement for traditional currencies.Potential threats of shares versus BitcoinAs well as offering a high chance of a sustained stock market rally, shares also offer less risk than Bitcoin. In many cases, they currently trade at low prices following the stock market crash. As such, they have wide margins of safety that could mean investors have priced in many of the challenges facing the world economy. And, with it being possible to diversify across a wide range of companies and sectors, the risks of buying stocks for the long term can be reduced significantly.Bitcoin, meanwhile, continues to face a challenging long-term outlook. Threats such as regulatory risks and the rising popularity of other virtual currencies don’t seem to have negatively impacted on investor sentiment this year. Over time though, they could weigh on sentiment and cause the Bitcoin price to underperform shares in a stock market rally.Making a millionEven if an investor generates an annual return in line with indexes such as the FTSE 100, they could make a million as a result of a stock market rally. For example, an 8% annual return that’s the same as the FTSE 100’s past returns would turn a £500 monthly investment into a £1m portfolio within 35 years.As such, now could be the right time to buy a selection of UK shares. Over time, they may offer higher return prospects with less risk than Bitcoin.

Mel Berry

first_img When Mel Berry captained Wales at the 2002 World Cup as a 20-year-old, there was clearly something a bit special about the youngster who former England international Sue Day calls “one of the best defensive back-row players” ever to play the game.Having made her debut in 1998 as a teenager, Berry went on to win 93 caps for her country, leading Wales for most of her career until retiring in 2010.Perhaps one of the best ways to highlight how important Berry was to Wales over those years was the fact that she played in six different positions – all across the back row, at scrum-half and in both centre spots – although she is probably best known for her barnstorming efforts from the back of the scrum.“She was a tremendous player and a tremendous captain in all senses,” said Jason Lewis, who coached her with Wales. Major teams: Newcastle, Wasps, Worcester, Auckland MaoriPosition: Back-row/centre/scrum-halfCountry: WalesTest span: 1998-10 Now working in sport full-time across Yorkshire, Berry has an appetite for coaching where her versatile playing years will surely make her a dead cert for success at whatever level she chooses.For the latest Rugby World subscription offers, click here. Her club career took in stints with Wasps, Worcester and Newcastle and she also spent time learning her trade in Auckland – even featuring for the Auckland Maori side.Berry experienced highs and lows with Wales throughout her career. She describes Wales’ failure to qualify for the 2006 World Cup as the most heart-breaking moment she ever had in the game, but she was also a key member of the team that beat England in 2009 for the first time ever.In fact, some of her best memories will have come from games against England. Berry led Wales at U18 and senior level to wins over the English while she was also part of the 2006 Wales Sevens squad that beat the same nation to the European title.center_img LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS TAGS: The Greatest Players last_img read more

Movilización a Miraflores en rechazo al nuevo intento de golpe

first_imgA las 4 de la madrugada del 30 de abril un grupo reducido de miembros de la Fuerza Armada Nacional Bolivariana (Fanb), estimado en 100, identificado con una bandera azul encabezó el inicio de un intento de golpe de Estado. El movimiento tuvo dos elementos principales: la aparición de Leopoldo López, dirigente del partido Voluntad Popular que estaba en prisión domiciliaria, en la base militar de La Carlota junto a Juan Guaidó, así como el movimiento de un grupo de integrantes de la Fanb con cintas azules a Altamira, zona principal de movilizaciones de la derecha en Caracas.El ministro de comunicación, Jorge Rodríguez, el comandante de la Fanb, Vladimir Padrino López, así como el presidente de la Asamblea Nacional Constituyente, Diosdado Cabello, entre otros, afirmaron en las primeras horas que la base de La Carlota no estaba tomada, y que los cuarteles del país se mantenían en respaldo al presidente Nicolás Maduro.Guaidó afirmó que se trataba de la fase definitiva de lo que ha denominado la “operación libertad”. El intento militar contó con el respaldo público internacional del gobierno norteamericano, a través de Mike Pompeo, del presidente de Colombia Iván Duque, del gobierno de Argentina a través del canciller Jorge Faurie, el secretario de la Organización de Estados Americanos, Luis Almagro, el presidente del Parlamento Europeo, Antonio Tajani, entre otros.El gobierno de España, por su parte, rechazó el intento violento: “Debe quedar claro que España no respalda ningún golpe militar”.El nuevo asalto apareció con una fuerza mediática que no tiene su correlato en la capacidad militar en el terreno. Tampoco ha existido, hasta el momento, una respuesta de apoyo de la población opositora en las calles para respaldar a los militares.La situación en Caracas, a excepción de los dos epicentros y de las redes sociales, presenta una tensa tranquilidad. El chavismo por su parte ha comenzado a movilizarse al Palacio de Miraflores para respaldar al presidente Nicolás Maduro, la democracia, rechazar el nuevo momento del intento de golpe de Estado.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more
